Lee Brice recently reached out to the family of a fan who was killed in a car accident and donated money to help cover her funeral expenses. Courtney Trent, mother of a six-month-old baby, was killed in a crash last month in Franklin, TN after an oncoming driver fell asleep at the wheel. Her husband was also injured in the crash as the couple was heading from celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary.
Lee was Courtney’s favorite musician, according to her brother, Trenten Scott, who reached out to Lee on Twitter. Lee reportedly privately messaged Trenten asking how he could help, so Scott said he sent him a link to an online fundraiser. Lee donated more than $1000 writing “Y’all will be in my prayers.” All money collected will go toward funeral expenses and the care of Trent’s infant son.
Lee said, “Our fans treat us so well. We love them. I felt like I was part of their family and I wanted to help — just like I’d help my own family.”
